The current screenplay is by Greg Russo (the upcoming "Highwaymen").

"'Mortal Kombat" will be the largest film production in South Australia's history and highlights the importance of engaging with the world's major production houses", said Marshall. In terms of a timeline, pre-production is tipped to begin later this month.

Exciting times: The film, based on the hugely popular video game franchise, will be produced by James Wan, who most recently worked on Aquaman, and directed by Australian Simon McQuoid.

The Mortal Kombat movie will be filmed at Adelaide Studios in Glenside and will create 580 new jobs along with bringing $70 million AUD into the local economy.

The announcement was made by the Premier of South Australia, Steven Marshall.

'Mortal Kombat will enhance the scope and reach of our production and post-production capabilities'. LarrY kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear, and Sean Robins will executive produce. "I'm grateful to the Premier and people of South Australia for having us, we're all very excited to be here".

A release date has not been set by New Line. New Line Cinema's highly anticipated epic action film will shoot in and around Adelaide, South Australia and will be shot on Adelaide Studios' Sound Stages, utilizing the state's world-class crews and acting talent, with post-production in South Australia's internationally acclaimed visual effects and post-production facilities. Needless to say, Wan's experience with both blood-soaked horror films and over-the-top action movies should make him a unique asset for the Mortal Kombat movie reboot. Animation is also working on a Mortal Kombat animated film.
